* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: When Gretel falls through the hole in the ground at the start of Part 2. Hansel is standing right behind her, but doesn't notice her falling in - he's too distracted by the pretty, sparkly fairies. [[spoiler: Hansel and the fairies show up toward the end of the game to save Gretel when her face is stolen.]]

* TheBlank: ''Gretel And Hansel 2'' introduces creepy squiggly things that steal faces from other people. Their victims are turned into Blanks and lose all motivation and drive along with their faces they can't even move. This even applies to their [[spoiler: ghosts]].

** The stick man must count too. A walking, vaguely-humanoid woodman who delights in preparing food that transforms its consumer into a tree... killing them in very painful ways, such as ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement from pointy branches]] [[ChestBurster bursting out from the gut and]] [[EyeScream the eyes]].''

* SequenceBreaking: With some trial and error it's possible to reach Hansel in the second game without chopping the wood. Arguably this also prevents a PlotHole.

* TomeOfEldritchLore: The tome you obtain in the Stick Man's "kitchen", which is accompanied by satanic-sounding whispers and incantations. His "cookbooks" must be something like it, given his "food"...
* TooDumbToLive: Hansel, justified with the fact that he's mentally challenged.There are too many examples to show, but some very prominent ones are that he can swallow a pair of scissors, stand tip-toe on a cliff edge and not react to seeing his sister die horribly.
* VideoGameCaringPotential: In episode 2, you have the choice of ''saving'' the people that were captured by the tree. Just... Good luck eating the arm and leg.

* ViolationOfCommonSense: The stick man allows you to choose what you want to be served... Acorns or an amputated leg? Pie or an amputated arm? Salmon or an apple on a human skull's jaws? [[ButThouMust Cake?]] You must choose, in each question, the most disgusting answer; the one that most would probably think was the worst idea. Turns out, eating the safer-looking food rises the in-game counter faster than the disgusting-looking food. If you remember the info one of the dining guests told you, [[FridgeBrilliance eating the food that looked more plant-like would equal death. The arm, leg and fish still look very much natural]].
** Consider also that your host is basically a tree - the acorn, pie, and in fact the apple in the skull's mouth are all ''made from him''. The arm, leg, and fish are not.

''Gretel and Hansel'' is a series of Flash games by makopudding on {{Newgrounds}}, in which you play as Gretel of "Literature/HanselAndGretel" fame. The game takes place in a particularly nightmarish world, in which characters from other FairyTales make appearances. In the first game, Gretel overhears her parents' plans to abandon them in the forest and must find enough stones to mark the path back home; in the second, she is separated from her brother and must find him.

* ScheduleSlip: The second game took about a year to get off the ground, and they even lampshaded it in an Easter Egg, apologizing for it. The third game looks to be going through this as well.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: In part 1, shooting continually at Hansel. Considering the very painful and heartrending ways Gretel can die in, the same could be said about players wanting to find all the ways to die. (it's just very painful to watch)
